      If you are undecided on which personal trainer certification to choose, I suggest you take the quiz to find out which Cert is the best fit for you.

      This study guide covers the most recent volumes of the textbook: NASM Essentials of Personal Fitness Training 7th Edition and 6th Edition.

      This page contains links to the study guide for each chapter in the NASM textbook, a NASM practice test as well as a full NASM flashcards bundle.

      On top of this, each individual chapter has it’s own practice quiz and its own NASM flashcard study bundle for that particular chapter. Let’s get studying! 🤓
